I had my eye on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga since the game was announced. I’m a fan of LEGO games as I think they are a relaxing game to play in between something more intense. I wish I would have pre-ordered this game. As it turns out, it was difficult to find a copy. I lucked out because I was able to find a last-minute copy at Best Buy on the PS4. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an extravagant rendition of a nostalgic game.
The first thing that jumped out at me was how open-world this game is! I’m on episode #2, Attack of the Clones, and I like that I can explore Coruscant in great detail. There are bricks to collect, side missions, and characters to unlock. It seems every Star Wars planet will get this same overhaul. This goes beyond being a LEGO game. My husband walked in while I was playing through this game and laughed when he realized I was simply walking around collecting bricks and not advancing through the story. I love that there is so much to do.
Speaking of collectibles, there are at least 1,000+ blue bricks to collect throughout the game. I’m a completionist which means I like collecting everything and unlocking every single trophy. It’s going to take me forever to unlock everything, but it’s a challenge that I have accepted.
I wanted to keep this post short and sweet. Once I complete the game, I will write a more in-depth review. My first impression of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is that it’s a game well worth the money and perfect for any Star Wars fan of any age.
